Party hopping {Blogland Ball}

So excited to see that I get to go from one party to the next. On the eve of the full moon, the Bloglandia Ball has begun! Oh my what a party this is going to be. Just take a look at the gowns that Elizabeth has made for the event. I've slipped into my evening gown constructed of some of my favorite vintage finds. Everything feels right, I'm so happy to be here. Several other guests have arrived. I'm having an absolutely delightful time already:)

My newest friends are also ready to dress up. I found this candy pink frame with 1920's tru life paper dolls recently and couldn't resist. These girls are fabulous and thinking about going to the ball themselves. Darling!

As someone who has always been more creative with words than life, your blog helps me appreciate what it must mean to work with my hands and heart. I mentioned your blog at Tea Party Girl, today. I must admit, Halloween around my home is semi-fun, but your blog helps me think it could be more. What would you recommend for the artistic novice to be able to embrace more of what your community represents here?

Kari, although we have never met...I read your blog all the time. You always have the most clever posts. When I saw you featured in Artful Blogging magazine I was hooked and starting reading your blog often. I wrote about the Cape in the fall on my blog today and how much I look forward to going to the Just Be Connected Bazaar in the Cape in October. I thought I would mentioned that I linked your blog on my post today so that others would discover your lovely world. Blessings, Karen
